What exactly is Knob and Tube Wiring?
This is an underground wiring system that uses knob insulators to dissipate heat and that runs wires through unimpeded areas. The tubes protect the wires running through the studs and joints. This system provides a greater chance of shock or causes damage to your tv or appliances because it doesn't carry the same electrical capacity that modern homes require. The lack of grounding wires and switches turn off the circuit but not the current.
Why should I remove the Knob and Tube Wiring?
With new codes prohibiting the placement of insulation in contact with this type of wiring, you could actually start your house on fire. Most Winnipeg insurance companies will give you 30 days to completely removed the wiring system before providing coverage because of above average risk attached to insurable products.
